script type
This plugin aims to provide the ability to change the cursor when entering Vim's
insert mode on terminals that support it.  Currently, that's limited to iTerm,
Konsole, XTerm, and VTE-based terminals (version v0.39 or higher).
install details
Unzip into ``~/.vim`` (or ``%USERPROFILE%\vimfiles`` on Windows).  You may also
install it under pathogen by extracting it into it's own directory under
``bundle``, such as ``~/.vim/bundle/vim-togglecursor``.
